Cannon Memorial prides ourselves on striving for excellence in all that we do. That is why Cannon Memorial Hospital and its Medical Practices voluntarily participate in the accreditation process through Det Norske Veritas (DNV-GL). DNV-GL Healthcare was approved by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as a deemed status accreditation program for hospitals in the fall of 2008, after working through a strict application process to meet CMS’ evaluation criteria. The only other alternative accreditation programs for hospitals are The Joint Commission and The American Osteopathic Association’s Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program, and CMS itself. DNV-GL’s accreditation program follows the National Integrated Accreditation for Healthcare Organizations (NIAHO) standards which are based on the CMS Conditions of Participation and the ISO 9001 standard, the internationally recognized standard for quality management systems that is used to measure quality and accountability in dozens of industries. 2015 ISO Recertification News Release: 2015 ISO Certification
